Were you a slave when you were called? Don't let it trouble you--although if you can gain your freedom, do so.
For he who was a slave when he was called by the Lord is the Lord's freedman;1 similarly, he who was a free man when he was called is Christ's slave.2
References for 1 Corinthians 7:22
You were bought at a price;3 do not become slaves of men.
